When I got back into tabletop I just got a good deal on ebay. Otherwise I might have played CSM. But both for the models. Then I realised that I played a fast, hard hitting, fragile army in void, my first tabletop. Also I wanted a army that is not seen very often and is hard to play.
And then I realized that DE are the most pathetic race there is, believing they are the greatest just because they hide so well while a god feasts at their very souls. On the other hand, maybe they just are the greatest as they don't need to fight for a status quo, they just do as they like. We will never know the truth
- that is why I love them now!

My intro to the hobby was the black templar/dark eldar starterset from the beginning of 3rd ed. So I started collecting dark eldar and dark angels. Templar paint scheme was just too boring.
I loved the idea of having one army that had fun by inflicting misery on others, and another that just loved being miserable all the time. Who would win?? They're still the only armies I've collected to this day, except my genestealer cult Kill Team.
Dark Angels. The Rock. Lion El "Dwayne" Jonson. I can't be the first person to have thought of this.

I played with the idea of collecting Dark Eldar pretty much since the 5th edition codex and the new models were released, but I was focusing on my Space Marines back then. In 2014, I read Thor's tactica, which convinced me to finally start a Dark Eldar army. Then the 7th edition codex came out... but I decided to collect them anyway.

I chose models on the poll, but the real reason is because its the army Marilyn Manson would play if he played 40k.

I chose them many years ago, based on the fluff. I just didn't buy them, based on the models. (Ugliest ever)
So I waited, patiently, for an update that would make the models as cool as their background. 2010 came along and the rest is history. Bought a box of kabalites, wyches, two boxes of reavers, two boxes of hellions, an archon, lillith, a raider and the codex on their first day on the shelves.

Started playing 40k in late 3rd/early 4th and was drawn to DE because everyone told me they sucked.
This is kind of a theme for me...

I started playing with marines, and it seemed very much easy mode as their armour and the ATSKNF rule were covering my mistakes and let me win pretty often. (I am said to be a rather good player in our meta) I won my first local tournament with not so much a competitive marine list and the final match was against a serpent spam list by an experienced player in our meta.
I wanted hard mode, mobility and low toughness models so i bought a kabalite warrior force with the prize money of the tournament:) That is how i began...
